Book Round-Up

On the Woman's Bookshelf

Today I'm going to do a little Bookshelf Round-Up. What does that mean? I'm glad you asked. Since I don't always get to read each and every book from cover-to-cover, but I still need/want to share them with you, I'll every so often post a round-up. That way you'll get highlights of books that I think you'll find interesting.

"Cosmo's Sexiest Beauty Secrets: The Ultimate Guide to Looking Gorgeous," by the editors of Cosmopolitan magazine, recently came across my desk and I am itching to try out some of the secrets. This is one of those books that you'll want to keep on your vanity table or your nightstand so you can reference it whenever you get the chance. The book, which is beautifully illustrated, is easy to read and follow. Inside the pages you'll find the secrets to gorgeous skin, mesmerizing eyes, alluring lips, amazing hair... and that's just the tip of the eyeliner, uh, I mean iceberg. This book's publication date -- November 4th -- is just in time for the holiday season when we all will be trying to look our best.

I don't know about you, but when there is someone I admire or like I really want to read about them. That's why I thought you'd be interested in hearing about "The Private John Lennon: The Untold Story from His Sister" by Julia Baird. This book, which was released earlier this year, is written in Julia's words and reportedly puts the true and untrue rumors to rest. Have you ever wondered the truth about Lennon's illegitimate sister or what happened with his first marriage? Are you curious about is marriage to Yoko Ono or interested in the insider's view of his death? You'll learn those things as well as get the treat of 32 photos of one of the greatest rock starts.

On the professional and business side of the bookshelf are "Good Is Not Enough and Other Unwritten Rules for Minority Professionals," by Keith R. Wyche with Sonia Alleyne, and "1,000 Dollars and an Idea: Entrepreneur to Billionaire" by Sam Wyly. Both of these books, which were released this summer, are excellent reference materials. Wyly, who is listed as one of the 1,000 wealthiest people in the world by Forbes magazine, has blazed a path that made him millions by the time he was 30. That's definitely a man you want to get business advice from. And the authors of "Good Is Not Enough" present advice for women, African Americans, Latinos and Asian Americans to assist them in moving beyond the middle management level to senior level positions within corporate America.

I hope you'll come by next Thursday to see what's on my bookshelf. Until then read my last bookshelf pick here.
